Wexnet WOMEN giving back!
Over the years WEXNETWomen have proudly come together to support many great causes:
WEXNETWomen Onsite at Habitat for Humanity
Over the years, WEXNETWomen of NJ have volunteered at numerous homesites in Newark, NJ. Not only were these great days of getting professional women to come out of their comfort zones, but they were great days of giving back!
WEXNETWomen Giving Back to Shelter Our Sisters
Shelter Our Sisters assists women and children who are victims of domestic violence, including emotional, economic, sexual, and physical abuse.
WEXNETWomen have been loyal supporters of Shelter our Sisters of Bergen County by volunteering their time at the shelter; participating in their Annual Holiday Gift Wrap Fundraiser; providing financial contributions and donating supplies. We encourage you to click on their link above to learn more about this incredible organization and help however you see fit. It’s also imperative that you share their valuable information with any female, young or old, that may be in an abusive relationship and needs a safe place to reach out to!
WEXNETWomen Coming Together After Hurricane Katrina
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina temporarily relocated the beautiful Horne family from New Orleans to New Jersey. While reading a newspaper article focusing on the Horne’s shortly after their arrival in NJ, Beth was determined to help. Without hesitation, she called the hotel that the article mentioned they were living in, asked to be connected to their room and from that moment on, a beautiful friendship began. WEXNET put together a fundraising dinner for the Horne’s (William and Tosha and their 4 beautiful sons ~ Blake, Bill, Trae and Christopher), and as expected, WEXNETWomen came out in full force. Athough the Horne’s eventually went back home, Beth and Tosha have been blessed with a beautiful friendship.
“A NJ/NY WEXNETWoman Needs Your Help After Hurricane Sandy!”
This was the headline of an emergency eblast that was sent to our database asking for help for one of our very own WEXNETWomen in November, 2013. Carole was a huge supporter of WEXNET for years and had just moved to Breezy Point, NY 2 weeks before Sandy hit. Needless to say, she lost everything in this devastating storm. But in true WEXNETWomen fashion, notes of encouragement, words of prayer and generous donations began brightening Carole’s darkest days.
